||The photos were taken because Clayburn Moore is doing a brand new statue of Kabuki to be released next year. A much larger statue than the first Kabuki statue from 98.
There will be some photos of Clay's initial armiture scultping that he constructed with update photos from time to time on the site to show the process of his sculpture.
To help Clay out, I took some photos of Anh in the pose that we were discussing and that his armiture showed. So Clay can use the photos of Anh as reference of how I would like the figure and stance and presence of the statue.
In the past, I sent Clay sketches for this. But I felt like the photos of a real figure from all angles would be a much more helpful jumping off point for him.
Anh is wearing the Kabuki-style boots, and has a sickle in each hand. Which helps with the realism from Clay's POV. Especially so he can see how the muscles move in the figure while holding the sickles, etc. And Amazon Anh captures the form of the sculpture fantasticly. All 5 ft 9 inches of her.
So the photos also show great shots of the actual Kabuki Sickle that will be available next year. From all angles in her hands. In case you want to see what that looks like too.
The other sickle she has is from the farm that my mother grew up on in PA.
And Anh took some photos of me demonstrating to her the stance that the statue was to have. So there are some photos of me showing Anh the pose I'm looking for as well.
And it's all in my studio, so you can catch some glimpses of what that looks like if you are
And I think one of my cats is in frame in one of the photos.
|Mr. Mack was kind enough to also forward Mr. Moore's thoughts about the statue:|
||Here are the shots of the idea from the 4 sides. It takes a little imagination, of course. She's looking to her left and down a bit, very much inspired by the art you sent which I've always liked. The pose could be a little more dramatic even, with her center of gravity being just past her front foot with a little more arch in the back. In the regular piece she could be holding the mask in her left hand and the sickle in her right. In the AP [Artist Proof] version, she could have the mask on her face with the sickle in her left hand and an automatic in her right with the piece including a certificate and maybe the diamonds on her mask. I thought that looked beautiful on the bust piece.
Her front foot would be flat, with her on the ball of her back foot (as the pose requires) or she can be on her toes of both feet (not realistic, but more artistic).

||Fan Question: Any hope of further full-sized statues of the Noh Agents?
David Mack: Yup! Probably later in the year (to be out before Christmas time) I'd imagine.
Do you think they should start with another full-size Kabuki statue? Or go right to a Scarab or Siamese statue?
